12th April

Hi im new here and am getting married on the 12th April 2008 in Middlesbrough. I cant wait and thought i would be able to use this site to get advice and hopefully relax a little.

I have booked my date with the church and have got my dress, having a bit of a problem deciding on a reception venue, we do have the option to use the church hall however it would mean having to apply for an alcohol liscence and look for someone who has a portable bar. Has anyone done this before or heard of it before? if so could i have some adveice please??? thankyou hope to hear from peopkle soon


  • Hi lilme. Welcome to the site! I am getting married on the same day as you in Leicester. We are having our reception in the church hall next door - we loved the idea of keeping everyone in one place and noone having to drive anywhere. Luckily, our hall has a bar but I am sure that you can hire a portable bar, and i read earlier today that they usually sort out the license too. Good luck with your plans and here's to hoping for good weather April next year!

    thanks for the reply jessie99 its nice to know someoneelse is having there reception in the church hall, alot of my friends arenmt keen on the idea. and yes heres hoping to good weather
  • i know what you mean - I've had a big problem with my dad about it. i think he is disappointed as he feels like it is his responsibility to put on a "good show" but i am so much keener on a moer informal party - and spending a bit more on food and drink that we could have otherwise. I'm sure we'll prove them all wrong and have lovely days! x

    nooo i havent got half the stuff i need and if i get maried now i would panic lol. where r u getting married?? what have u got sorted??
  • Can you believe, it's only 7 months til the big day!!

    We are getting married at a House For An Art Lover, in Glasgow. The ceremony and the reception are both there, so we don't need to worry about a separate venue. I went to try my dress on again at the weekend, which brought it all so much closer.

    Hope you are all enjoying the planning. We need to sort out favours and invitations, as well as day time music. Other than that, feeling fairly organised, though there are probably 101 things I should have done already! (o;

    we are sending ours out in november, mil is doing table plan and she lives 180 miles away so we need plenty of time to get rsvp give her names of who's said yes, so she can do it so we can collect it at easter (3 weeks before the big day) and then get it to venue 3 days before the day as they want everything there 3 days before.
  • hi mema i was thinking about sending ours in nov and have a rsvp date of mid dec xx

    i cant wait my belly gets butterflies everytime i go into the church now. just the planning can get really stressfull, especially becos my mum wont have anything to do with it and my dad is in brighton so i have 2 keep asking h2b's family for advice and ask them to come with me when i am looking at things
  • It will soon come round. try not to stress too much tho - when the day comes you will wonder why you did, everything just seems to fall into place, i didnt worry once on the day just enjoyed the whole experience & tried to make it last as it goes so quick.

    Hope you get everything sorted with family.
